The fourth quarter is well underway in high school English. Ninth graders are turning in their first final draft of the quarter, writing about the best advice they have ever received. This will go along with The Great Gatsby, the next book we will read. To prepare, we are also learning about Modernist literature and some background on the 1920 ideas.
Tenth graders are also working on writing a restaurant review. Their final draft isn’t due for a few weeks. Tenth graders are learning some background information on revolutions in preparation to read Animal Farm. Report cards were distributed at conferences on Friday, or sent home with your student today, so please look for those.
